In Our Blood

Fall into an altered state
Golden hat for two
Crackling embers of a fire
If I composed a letter today
I would write one out
And send it off to you
Intention in every stroke
Every overcurve rising with my
Innermost thoughts
Every descender every slant
A heartfelt manuscript
Even the ink would be blessed
But I don’t know your address
I’m not sure where you reside
I watch the things you scribe
From a distance
Like watching the geese
Disappear in the mist
Of the morning fog
Your words gather in
Flocks of love
This way and that way
I am thunderstruck
Before the storm
The stove is warm
Inside my eyes
As I watch you prepare
A feast for the heart
Words the sweet divine
Passes through you
I see you too
Have the Gods in your blood
Creation is love
Love is divine
What is it like
To be with you?

The space between us
Is in particularly
Beautiful
Would it be a mouthful
If we were together?
It doesn’t really matter
I don’t know where you dwell
Perhaps it’s the in the sky
Underneath a shell
Somewhere in the sea
Or on an island waiting
For a letter just
From me
